GMA International, which manages the operations and distribution of GMA Network’s international channels abroad, continues to gain ground in Europe following the launch of its three international channels – GMA Pinoy TV, GMA Life TV and GMA News TV International – on Lyca TV.
Lyca TV, one of the largest ethnic content providers in the world, enables its consumers to enjoy GMA content not just in their homes, but also through their mobile devices.
With this launch, Filipinos in over 16 countries in Europe – UK, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium, Ireland, Denmark, Portugal, Norway, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Austria and Finland – can now enjoy their favorite Kapuso programs through GMA’s three international channels.
Since its launch in Europe in September, GMA International has been receiving positive feedback on social media from Filipinos across the continent for bringing Filipinos in Europe closer to home through the programs that they offer.
Facebook user Rhodora Red Rodriguez Capidaglis welcomed the channels’ launch on Lyca TV saying, “Our kababayan from London and other parts of Europe will enjoy GMA Pinoy TV international. Good Christmas gift to all GMA fans and subscribers.”
“Ay salamat naman at mapapanood ko na dito sa Norway ang paborito kong station, ang GMA [Thank goodness, I can finally watch my favorite station, GMA, here in Norway],” says Cynthia Brosas Hansen.
Ruby de Gracia from Italy shares, “Magandang balita yan para sa amin na narito na malayo sa pamilya… [This is good news for all of us here who are far from our families…]”
As it continues to expand its reach abroad, the Network also welcomes the new year with a fresh line up of shows for Kapuso viewers worldwide.
The opening salvo in the first quarter features GMA Artist Center’s popular teen tandems led by Wish I May, headlined by the love team of Miguel Tanfelix and Bianca Umali, who were last paired in the primetime program Once Upon A Kiss.
On the heels of their phenomenal series The Half Sisters, fellow teen stars Barbie Forteza and Andre Paras share the screen once again in That’s My Amboy,which will be launched this month.
Meanwhile, in February, Vampire Ang Daddy Ko co-stars Bea Binene and Derrick Monasterio are set to star in Hanggang Makita Kang Muli.
Rounding out the Kapuso Network’s first quarter offerings are programs that are sure to keep audiences worldwide tuned in each week – Dear Uge, with Eugene Domingo as host, and Lip Sync Battle, hosted by Michael V. and Iya Villania – starting February.
The latest Kapuso programs are not the only things Kapuso audiences in Europe can look forward to as Kapuso star Solenn Heussaff, who hosts the GMA lifestyle show Taste Buddies, will head to the United Kingdom, Paris, Ireland and Italy for a fun-filled celebration of Kapuso month in February.
Solenn will also grace Handog: Philippine-Paris Ball, a black tie event that honors outstanding Filipino youth, entrepreneurs, community organizations and businesses on Feb. 14 at the Club Haussmman in Paris, France.
